Why We Like It

The Patagonia Stretch Planing Board Shorts do exactly what boardshorts should do: fit well, excellent range-of-movement, and won't fall apart after a couple of beach seasons. The grown-on waistband and flat-lying fly with a rubber button are a nice touch and easy to undo. A singular zippered side pocket it just big enough to carry any essentials you might need while in the water.
